Former President Donald Trump allegedly informed advisers that he would appear before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on January 6, but only if the session was televised live.
On Thursday, the New York Times published Trump’s purported statements, citing a “person familiar with his talks.” Taylor Budowich, a representative for Trump, did not immediately reply to the Daily Caller’s question regarding the allegation.
According to the source cited in the Times story “Trump,” in their opinion “loves the idea of testifying.”
If the former President did end up testifying he would “talk about how corrupt the election was, how corrupt the committee was, and how Nancy Pelosi did not call up the National Guard that Trump strongly recommended for her to do three days earlier on January 3, 2021,” the source went on to claim.
Thursday, the committee voted overwhelmingly to subpoena Trump.
Trump has not yet officially declared whether or not he will testify before the House committee.
Trump did slam the committee during an appearance on Fox News however, saying that “The committee is a hoax, a sham, a partisan witch hunt which is a continuation of the witch hunt that has gone on since the great day for our country that I came down the golden escalator with our future first lady…They have no case, they have no ratings, so they have to try to do this to get publicity.”
